Oktoberfest is one crazy experience. I’ve been lucky enough to have been and lived to tell the tale. It’s possibly too intense for any human to handle, and it’s certainly a once in a lifetime experience. Go twice, and you’ll risk every single organ in your body.
Which is why it’s great to have a close enough place like Stein’s in Kingston. Mixing the best of Bavarian cuisine with a lovely riverside location, this is the place to go for big beers and big food. And what could be more Bavarian than a schnitzel?
Order the Schnitzel vom Schwein mit and you’ll get a humongous piece of breaded pork, a heap of potato salad and some more salad. It’s as delicious and German as it sounds. And for the brave, you can certainly match it with a 1lt stein of Paulaner.
It’s a sublimely traditional place, but with a very happy vibe, and it reminds me of the parts of Oktoberfest I actually remember. The ones I don’t… well… those are probably best forgotten.
Slimy? Just look at the size! Massive!
Satisfying? Das ist gut!
